KUALA LUMPUR: Mixed doubles coach Jeremy Gan has withdrawn Chan Peng Soon-Goh Liu Ying from the Korean Open, which begins in Seoul next Wednesday, due to the latter’s knee injury.
Peng Soon-Liu Ying are the second pair to opt out of the season-opener following an earlier decision to withdraw Koo Kien Keat-Tan Boon Heong from the men’s doubles due to Boon Heong’s viral fever.
“Liu Ying is down with a knee injury. For now, it is best that we pulled Liu Ying-Peng Soon out of the Korean Open. Their participation in the preceding Malaysian Open (Jan 14-19) and other future tournaments depends on Liu Ying’s condition,” said Jeremy.
“Liu Ying is looking at several options to recover from the knee injury. If all does not work in her favour, she will have no choice but to opt for a surgery. A decision will be made next week.”
